So .... the wording is lame or I am lame ... the result is the same:

Is the 50% off only for the new releases?

For example I put 2 Nightshift items in my cart and only got 30% off.

-

Is it working correctly?

If that is correct, well ... that’s too bad.  Everybody knows 40% is the new 30%.
No sale.  :(

Which two Nightshift items?

I get $16.16 if I add Communications Gear and Surveillance Gear (both $17.95 base price items).  That’s $35.90/2-10%, or $17.95-$1.79.

Seems to work fine.

Prices have changed for Adarian and Textures - now both are showing in the store as 51% off ($8.31 and $4.88) - and putting both in the cart results in -$4.71 - end result $8.48
$0.17 for the textures - nice.

NO extra discount for A5/Garibaldi buyer - not so nice.

*Waits a bit more*

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Greetings,
AH!  See…now the math gets complex.

Let’s take these individually…  I added Adarian and The Facility in.  Totalled to $12.52

The Facility, $15.95, 50% off, 10% off that is: 15.95 * 0.5 * 0.9 == 7.18
Adarian, 30% PC, 50% MM, 10% off that is: 16.95 * 0.7 * 0.5 * 0.9 == $5.34

$7.18 + $5.34 == $12.52

Whew!  Solved!

That was FUN! smile

Ah, I think I’m getting it now.
30% got me down to 11 x 2 and then -6 more for the 50.

....

I hate math.  But yes, it seems to be working now.  smile

My total discounts for two items (The Facility and Immortal Ronin) came to 55%. Which would be comprised of:

50% for getting two items
And 10% off the remainder for owning Aiko 5.

Calculating correctly.

Last year’s MM was my first, so is this a big change from the past? More just a wondering since buying things not wanted in numbers is more expensive than getting one item free. Still, any hazarded guesses/speculations that some sort of option will come up during the month similar?

(snip)

Mm-hmm, so far this looks exactly like the sales we’ve been getting for months, not Madness ones. And if outfits with high heels will no flat sole options are customary again I’ll save even more money.

Cheers, all. smile

When March Madness first came out, they’d offer an item a day for .99 or 1.99.  It truly was crazy and a bunch of fun.

Those days are gone forever, and March Madness has become pretty much like any sale going on here at Daz.

As far as the shoes go, I dunno.  I remember one year where March Madness was all miniskirts for V4, every day.

Looks like there is no “Buy it All” bonus this year. Nothing in the newsletter or promo page, which would be there or else folks would miss day one stuff and blow it right there if a more permanent section was not set up like last time.

As well as I also hated those buy this today for extra discount tomorrow so am glad that is gone. Not the 50% discount across the board as opposed to like 70% for PC members though.

And if outfits with high heels will no flat sole options are customary again I’ll save even more money. Whew! In short, not complaining much here as well as do know some new fun things will be released.

Cheers, all. smile

With no decent Buy It All Bonus, there’s not much incentive to buy something unless you really, really like it.  I skipped most of last year’s MM because Genesis was not very accessible to Poser then.  I picked up a few of them in December of way less than the MM price.

The first Buy It All’s offered multiple options.  IIRC, you had the option of getting DS4A for free (that was back when it was a for pay version), Daz Originals totaling $200 (full prices, no PC or other discounts), a mystery Grab Bag…there might have been other choices but I can’t remember them.

The first banners did have very fine print about getting V5 or M5 bundles free but that’s since disappeared.  They had to add the S5 pro bundle to the Snowball Savings (or some other sale…there have been so many)  BIA because most participants already had V5 and/or M5. 

I agree about the high heels on the adventure outfits.  Not very practical in the forest.  I suppose the hip hugging pants are “sexy” but how the heck do you sit down without them…oh, never mind…

Is it just me or does the march madness sale look more like a march tiff?
The sales don’t look any better then the ones I get biweekly emails about. I mean really it’s not march madness it’s more like march slightly irritable.

Have to say the MM offers aren’t stellar so far. The Facility is the most promising though, and I’m thinking hard about it. But because this might just be a warm up to something better later, I’m not completely sold yet.  Then again, it’s probably the only new item I might get to use since it’s not DS 4.5 exclusive.

However, I’m glad it’s not the “buy this, and you get a higher discount tomorrow for that” kind of sale. That was lame. So good job on not doing that again, DAZ! cool smile

Is the extra 10% discount for purchasing A5 only if you buy seclected items?  I too did not receive extra 10% on the Adarian + textures

I’m not fussing about how deep the discount is,  but the promo format is stale. But they are just getting started. No doubt in the next few weeks they are going to have some promotions that will really catch our eyes.

Not sure, I bought the A5 Pro Bundle, and I am showing $8.48 for a cart with Adarian and textures in it.
